  1. The spark happened between the dryer and the cpu which was soldered onto the laptop mobo. Didn't see anything else particularly burned when I examined it. I just put everything back and it's a pain to take apart so I want to slack on the pics.
  2. Finally I have come down to these 2 models Team L5 Lite 3D vs Sunbow X3 A Taiwanese company who's been doing stuff since 97 but only has 1 year warranty and is sold by Canada Computers or A no name Chinese company who uses exact same parts as other Chinese no name brands. It does have 3 year warranty but you also don't know if they will be in business in 3 years to uphold the warranty but this item is sold by Amazon I feel inclined to buy the Team Group one, any reason not to? Damn, how come I never looked into Team group before? Adata sells the same grade stuff for way more and not even that much better.
  3. Dead ram, running memtest turns my display into blocky screensaver. It's a 4GB DDR3 sodimm, came with the machine. I know most companies don't have as good RMA as Kingston. Haven't used any Micron stuff before.
  4. Yeah the RMA thing is a good point. What's the RMA process like for Sunbow? Is it up to Amazon to uphold it like how Samsung does it?
  5. What's the final verdict on TC Sunbow X3? I really don't want to put any more money than this price range, and this appears to be ranked higher than Adata SU650 Not that many people have reviewed it, and Amazon reviews are really mixed on this.
  6. I feel like if I am going to buy an SSD with dram I will just go with the intel one that's the cheapest right now, but I don't want to spend even that little bit more. This is for an old gaming console, and I am using it for downloadable games so it should be mostly loading only.
  7. Super Talent https://www.amazon.com/Super-Talent-256GB-Solid-FTM56N325H/dp/B07WNK8QR8/ Valuegist https://www.amazon.com/Valuegist-240GB-Internal-Desktop-Laptop/dp/B06XPYJ1HM/ TOROSUS https://www.amazon.com/TOROSUS-240GB-Industrial-Enterprise-TSA/dp/B07RS114MZ/ TC SUNBOW https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073W3QX2J/ They any good? Either I get these, or I go for Adata. Just need a cheap drive to breath some new life into a really old device. Don't want to put much money into it. --------------------- Finally I have come down to these 2 models Team L5 Lite 3D vs Sunbow X3 A Taiwanese company who's been doing stuff since 97 but only has 1 year warranty and is sold by Canada Computers or A no name Chinese company who uses exact same parts as other Chinese no name brands.

  8. Even in laptops that use plastic chasis, the inside of the casing still has thin metal plates surrounding the circuit boards. Wouldn't there be danger of short circuiting if the pieces touch? I have also seen some harddrives with the circuit boards right at the bottom with no protrusion to prevent circuit contacting with metal surfaces, and it's sold inside a metal enclosure with no further shielding whatsoever. I don't understand this design at all.
  9. Big-name companies in the west often include this neat tool, and I have come to really appreciate this when I have hardware failure on boards that didn't have diagnostics to help me pinpoint the broken part, but I want to build my own PC's, not pre-built like HP or Dell. Does any of the board manufacturers like Asus, Asrock, Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI include hardware diagnostics on their boards?
  10. I am mainly looking at 240 ~480gig sata ones. No fixed budget, but the plan is to go as cheapo as possible but not to the point of sacrificing too much quality just to save money. Something cheap and lasts. Speed is not a major concern as long as it's on par with 5400rpm drives.
